"Sending Happy Thoughts" Card using Spellbinders

Hello  Everyone,

So happy you dropped by today!.

I am showing you a card that I made to put into my card collection to have on hand for someone either going through a rough time or not feelin so hot.

The clear stamp I used was a gift from Christina from Flowers Ribbons and Pearls, called "Fairies of the Season" by Sarah Williams, isn't she beautiful!!! I colored her using Spectrum Noir Pens and luckily it is a small stamp so the flaws are hidden , yeah still not so good at coloring.

I folded the Spellbinder leaves and inked them to make them look more realisitic and dabbed the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts with Gold Stickles from Ranger. I also used  stickles around the Spellbinders Scalloped circle. For the sentiment I used cuts from the cricut cartridge " Bloom"

 Don't Forget!!!

Please join us next Wednesday as we launch our very first challenge, I am beyond excited and hope you will all participate!!!!. 
If you missed the pre-launch, you can find some more details on what is in store for the month of March by clicking HERE.

Have a fantastic Day

Bit By the Bug: Another Bug is Born...Budding Love

Welcome to the final week in our Love is in the Air collection of new releases.  I hope that the love that you receive and the love you give continues to blossom throughout time.  The next image being released in this new collection is another great one for showing that extra special person in your life, just what they mean to you...
Both versions of Budding Love are in the STORE in the new Bugalicious section and are available for purchase, if you are interested.  Clicking HERE should bring you right to that section.

Aren't digi stamps wonderful?  You can take one stamp and people can have different interpretations of it.  While Naomi had originally intended that this image be of two ants, both Monica and Vicky saw bees.  It once again proves just how versatile stamps can be.  Oh and if you are wondering why the image is called, "Budding Love", it is because when ants reproduce, it is called budding.  Apparently this male ant is all set to get his groove on tonight.

 Team Bugaloo is up with creations to showcase Naomi's cute new image this week...

Such a sweet card by Vicky.  Wonderful card shape and framing too.  You can check out the details of this project over on Vicky's blog Crafting Vicky.

Next up is...

Monica has created a wonderful birthday card perfect for when you are running a bit late.  Love those button flowers!  You can check out all the details of Monica's card by visiting her blog, TaylorMade 4U.

Even Naomi had the opportunity to create a card...

 How adorable!  Love the contrast of the dark ants with the white and also that wonderful diecut frame with its edges inked in the corresponding blue we find in the coloured version of the image.  Great sentiment too!

Sneak peek guesses...

Thanks to all of you who offered up guesses.  There was a common theme among most of the guesses that it was a bug in love and technically I suppose you are correct!  So, congrats to those of you who suggested it was a love bug or a bug in love.  That list includes: KT Fit Kitty, Kimberly (well technically Kimberly's 7 year old son), Edwina and Sarah.  Contact me please by clicking HERE to pull up my email address and send me a message with the subject heading 'CBD Sneak Peek: Budding Love' and I'll send you three "Love Bug" sentiments that you can find in the watermark below.   Please note that it might take me a few days to get back to you though, so I appreciate your patience.

Now, it is your chance to win a copy of the latest new release...

Once again you have the opportunity to win a copy of Naomi's newest release.  In order to have your name in the running to win a copy of Budding Love, think of one person that means a lot to you.  Tell me one special thing about them?  I'd love to hear your thoughts on the subject.  Leave a comment ON THIS POST by noon on March 3rd, in order to have your chance at winning this image. Please note that due to the challenge starting next Wednesday, the time frame to answer is two days less.

Winners will be announced during a special winner announcement post on Tuesday, March 4th!

Which means it is time to announce the winner of the last new release.  I had wanted to know, who in your life gives you the best hugs?  Four people answered and it was nice to see that the majority of you have someone special in your life that you can get a great hug from.  Hugs really are very important as they release hemoglobin in the blood and help to cure what ails us.  Personally, I get fabulous hugs from my wonderful hubs.  Of course you have to be ready for them because they can be rather bone crushing if you are not.

 Time to tell you who won a copy of the last new release, Love Struck Bears...

(randomly chosen at  Mini Web Tool)

Kimberly, please contact me by clicking HERE with the subject heading 'Love Struck Bears' to get your copy.  It might take me a few days to get back to you, so I appreciate your patience.

Now for our final love related joke...
Q: What did one light bulb say to the other?
A: I love you a whole watt!

 Don't Forget...

Please join us next Wednesday as we lauch our very first challenge.  We hope that you will come and join us.  If you missed the pre-launch, you can find some more details on what is in store for the month of March by clicking HERE.
Since there will be no sneak peak on Saturday, I'll see you all on Tuesday to let you know who won a copy of the today's release.  Until then, have a fabulous week everyone!
